[visionlist] Post-doc proposal: Charting the human brain with fMRI

Please find enclosed a post-doc proposal for an original “exhaustive
cognitive mapping” performed in the framework of the Human Brain
Project.

Duration & salary: 12 months renewable up to 3 years, about 2100 enet monthlyResearch teams: Parietal (INRIA Saclay) and Unicog (INSERM), located at Neurospin, Saclay,France.Responsible: Bertrand Thirion. Contact: bertrand.thirion@inria.frApplication: Interested candidate should send CV and motivation letter.

The
post-doc will be in charge of setting a set of protocols up and running
to pass them on the existing pool of 12 subjects of the Individual
Brain Charting project. These protocols will be provided by the
community (potentially from in-house developments) are meant to cover a
large array of sensory, motor and cognitive processes. The post-doc will
take part to the set of acquisitions performed on Neurospin 3T scanner
at high resolution (1.5mm) and analyze the data by using a pipeline
provided by the lab. Detailed reports will be provided to assess the
quality of the data, motivate the participants and document the content
of the database. These reports will provide extensive information on the
functional organization of the brain in each individual, which will
furthermore be confronted to other imaging modalities, e.g. anatomical
and functional connectivity. Complex alignment procedures will then be
carried out to obtain a population-level mapping that will lead to the
first data-based cognitive atlas of the human brain. The data and atlas
and analysis material will be released publicly.
